Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Videos
The Trackhawk has landed.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is being loaned out to automotive journalists left and right and someday someone on Turo will rent me one for about $350 a day. Until that day comes, I’m gonna have to sit on top of my dryer at home with a laptop and headphones and make vroom-vroom noises at the dog.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has the 6.2L Supercharged Hellcat motor pushing 707 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque. A lot of people will have questions about this vehicle and I will list a few below.
Q. Why would anyone need 707 hp?
Q. Why wouldn’t you just buy a GTR for the same money?
Q. What kind of person buys an $87k Trackhawk anyways?
A. People who love America.
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s watch Motorweek’s video review. A few things to ponder while watching Motorweek. Why is this show so nerdy? Why is the host wearing a dirty pair of drawers under his helmet? Why was there not a single burnout or drag race in a vehicle that is obviously designed to go in a straight line? I know it’s called a Trackhawk but it’s obviously for a drag strip and Draghawk or Striphawk both take my mind to interesting places but not where they are supposed to go.
All that being said, I am very excited about the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. I don’t care that it costs $87,000+, I am just so happy that Jeep is making it but I do wish this motor came in a Compass because that would be silly. We all need weird vehicles that do amazing things. If you’ve never been in a high horsepower vehicle and done a bunch of 0-60 pulls, I highly recommend it. What about y’all? Are you happy going 0-60mph by lunch time? Would you rather spend that kind of scratch on a rear steer Jeep Wrangler?
